is a new collection "entre-deux / à deux" (in between / two of us) organized by the French embassy of the Elgaland~Vargaland Kingdoms, a co-production between the Editions Cactus and Optical Sound.

On the 27th of may 2007, at 15.05 a foreshore in Normandy was annexed by the French ambassador of the Kingdoms of Elgaland and Vargaland, and initiated a musical experimental project. Each volume of the collection gathers various authors whose work is an original creation, using the concept of utopian territories and fluctuating spaces. Each listening of the records therefore becomes a sonic journey investigating Elgaland~Vargaland, capturing the echoes of the foreshore.

The collection's graphic was conceived by Samuel Ruchot, who created playful graphics, integrating the shape of the kingdom's flag. Hence, the floating flag, distorted, is associated with different background colours, each one corresponding to a different volume, allowing an easy identification of the various ones.

Each cover is also conceived as a way of exhibiting the intimist images of the photographs of Ludivine Mabire, which can be seen when one removes the disk.

Each disk from the collection is an experimental space encapsulating the poetic representation of the Elgaland Vargaland territories.
